Well it’s been a week internet people.
After a pretty good weekend, full of lounging around, cuddles and laughter, I started the working week. I managed to get to 9:14 before I regretted it. Tuesday wasn’t much better, with all this furlough pay business making my day more than a little problematic before I stopped being able to process reports around 2:45pm. I spent Wednesday morning sorting that out and went home for lunch. I had french toast (bread dipped in whisked egg with a little mustard and black pepper) and despite the back pain, which is a lovely new addition to my day, made it back to the office.
Then s**t got weird.
I had some kind of allergic reaction. It started with intense indigestion, then every inch of my body was itching, my throat closed up, I couldn’t swallow. My body produced more mucus in that hour, than it had all year. I spent the best part of an hour lying fetal, spluttering. After some off the shelf anti-histamines and water, my reaction calmed down.
I don’t know why I reacted like that, I am not allergic to eggs, mustard or black pepper, so it was a mystery. It was also a terrifying moment in the midst of a terrifying time.
Still I handled it and all returned to ‘normal’ but that was something of a scare.
